Google Updates Google Keep Web App: Cleaner Design, Navigation Drawer, Better Search and More!

December 11, 2013 - Written By Andrew Port

Keep, Google’s Note-taking, Remind-me-later app for Chrome and Android 4.0 and higher has gotten an update today, but not for either of the platforms mentioned. Google updated the Web App just recently, for those of you who access Keep on your computer’s browser like Chrome, Firefox and the like. The webpage now looks a lot more like the Android App itself, and really looks like the design language that Google is trying to push, with the card-like layers and so forth. In addition to that, they’ve also included the Navigation drawer on the left side of the screen, also part of that aforementioned design language.


Here’s a full list of the changes: Sleek new design: many of your favorite things from the Android app are now on the web – full color notes, text that scales to fit the note, and a custom font just for Keep; Rearrange items in lists: keep everything in order, all the time; Improved search: finding the note you’re looking for is easier than ever;  Navigation drawer: quickly switch between your active and archived notes, or get a custom view of all of your notes with reminders.

Definitely some worthwhile enhancements in there, despite some of them just being updates to the look and feel of the web app. Google is making sure its Keep Web app can keep up with the counterparts on Android and Chrome, so if you prefer using Web services without installing anything, this update is for you.
